The expansion of attack pathways had lead to constant evolution in the Application Security or AppSec industry. With various new threats continues to appear and need to be quickly addressed, the AppSec team are facing new challenges every day. This lead to the rise of Application Security Orchestration and Correlation in the recent years. Therefore, how does Application Security Orchestration and Correlation work?
What is Application Security Orchestration and Correlation?
Basically, Application Security Orchestration and Correlation or in short ASOC is a platform that acts as a single source of truth through integrating results from multiple AppSec initiatives applied within an organisation, be it a DAST, SAST or an SCA tools as well as automated and manual scanners.
How does Application Security Orchestration and Correlation work?
An ASOC focuses on five capabilities to make it work as an excellent application security approach. The capabilities include:
Orchestration involves ASOC platform automatically configure and running the application security testing tools within the CI/CD pipeline by activating the right tools at the right time and the right level.
As organisations adopt multiple Application Security tools to effectively detect various vulnerabilities, correlation is essential in integrating the results of different formats and severity ratings being generated by every AppSec tool applied to provide a unified set of results.
With numerous results of vulnerabilities obtained, the ASOC tools provide insights through automation to allow you prioritize on vulnerabilities with higher risk for fixing.
ASOC platform interface directly with issue tracker such as Jira and gather the most vulnerable issue need to be resolves first and send notification to the assigned developer inside the issue tracker as well as offers remediation efforts guide. It also track whether remediation action had been carried out by the developer.
5. Risk visibility
ASOC platform gives developers and AppSec teams with clear viewthe AppSec process, providing risk visibility to the software applications whether the risks come from the source code issue, open source issue or others sources.
